What is Torah?

Torah is the Hebrew Scripture in a general sense. To be more specific, Torah is the first five book of the Bible, whether it be the Hebrew Scirpture or the Christian Scripture (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy). In it’s basic Hebrew meaning, Torah means to aim. Sometimes it’s translated as Law and Instructions. However it’s used, we can still detect each of it’s meaning in the context. The Torah was what was given to Israel at Mt. Sinai after the exodus from Egypt. Torah is the foundation for everything that came after, Prophets and Apostolic Scripture (if you’re a Christian).
